Giant in 4K Ultra HD, oil, dollars and James Dean

This is undoubtedly the best film by George Stevens, awarded the Oscar for Best Director in 1957. One of the three films of James Dean's all too short and dazzling career. It's first announced in 4K Ultra HD next June.

An epic and monumental saga set in the world of Texas oilmen, Giant follows the rise and fall of a clan of wealthy Texans. It also lays the groundwork for what would become the most famous television series of the 80s, Dallas. A scathing work on the power of money and the compromises it provokes. Gorgeous.

New master restored and calibrated

Announced for the very first time in 4K Ultra HD at Warner on June 22, it is not yet known whether Giant will be supplemented by previous bonuses already published such as the presentation of the film by George Stevens Jr, comments by historian Stephen Farber, by the screenwriter and G. Stevens Jr, the memories of Giant (52 minutes), a report on the premieres of the film in New York and Hollywood in VOST (35 minutes), the documentary The Return of the Giant (54 minutes) as well only two behind-the-scenes reports from the filming in VOST (13 minutes)…

Reply on June 22 with freshly restored 4K UHD, new color grading (HDR10) and an audio track from the original mono tapes.
